No nails leaning photo display

I always get that itch for change around my house and I love it when you can create a new look for nothing just by rearranging furniture and using what you have!

When we no longer need a desk top computer we sold the desk it sat on and that left a huge void on this wall! I’ve been hopping for a new unit to fit this space but in the mean time I thought I create a tempory filler.

I moved the sofa table from the Piano room into this space. I’ve always hated teh placement of those outlets! I’ve always had to cover them up in some creative way.  This itme calls for leaning pictures!

I’ve had these large photos of my babies I never got around to hanging and when pulled together with a piece of art work from a cousin I think they do the trick!

The lip around this table makes this an ideal setting for leaning photos and the large glass cake cover keeps the photo from slipping forward.

I also added my large vintage scissors I found at Hobby Lobby and never knew were to hang to the mix.


All in all I am super pleased with this space! It’s a great way to show off pictures and rotate them easily. No nails in the wall and my kids are loving seeing old photos of themselves!



IKEA’s been a treasure trove lately! I could resist this darling white tray and teal blue vase! Makes a great little vignette for my family room!

I found this Wire Cage set at my grocery store of all place on clearance! YES PLEASE! $8 later it was mine!

Tiny photo of Cricket and all i need now is a tiny flower and maybe  a piece of fabric to add a little color!

    I was wondering about those sockets. I would probably be driven bonkers as well! Very cute setup and that birdcage looks sweet. It seems ridiculously easy to re-create. I may have to try it! :)

    I love leaning photos! I’m thinking of doing this same concept but on my fireplace. Not on the mantle, but down below on the sides where we normally would store wood. Great inspirational post that doesn’t cost any money…

    Love this idea! We have weird “in outer space” outlets all over our house……I don’t know what they were thinking! And that grocery store wire cage?? I need to find a new, more hip, grocery store I think! Thanks for sharing!

    So wish I were as creative as my friend. Is there anyway you can rub off onto me just a little ;) Thanks for sharing all your amazing ideas! Much love Becca!!
